Yay for Vacation! Boo for Leaky Roofs!

It is only 3 days until I am officially on vacation.  There has been so much stress lately it is much needed.  I feel bad for my husband though because he doesn't get to go with me.  We work at the same place and my boss says we are not allowed to tak e off work at the same time.  It really bites that we can't go on trips for our anniversary like we used to.  I try not to complain too much because I am really grateful we both have jobs when I know so many that have lost one and can't find another.  For the last few years I have gone on vacations with my mother.  The first year we went to Colorado, last year we went to Branson, and this year we are going to Tennessee.  We already have the whole week planned out.  We are stopping by Graceland on the way, and while we are there we have a week full of fun stuff such as caverns, zip lines, ghost walks, zorb balls, riverboats, chocolate factories, horseback riding, and orchards.  I can't wait!

So part of what has been bringing on the stress is the fact that my roof is leaking.  It rained pretty hard for about a week and that was when we noticed the leaking.  It is pretty bad too.  Boo for leaking roofs.  We have the roof covered in tarps right now and an insurance claims adjuster is coming out this afternoon to look at the damage and see if it will be covered by our insurance.  I was reading through the paperwork last night and there is only a 50/50 chance of it being covered.  It really just depends on the adjuster.  I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is covered because I can afford a $500 deductable, but we can't afford to replace the roof on our own.

Please pray that it will be covered under the insurance and that I don't have to stress about getting the roof replaced while I am on vacation.
